Inspiration came from a birdy trip to Farlington Marshes on Monday where it was positively spring-like; sunshine, skylarks singing and my first butterfly of the year. So I decided to make some butterfly bunting for a friend's new arrival.
I love vintage paintings of flora and fauna, so I googled vintage butterfly paintings for some ideas of shapes and patterns...
Then raided my fabric stash for some pretty scraps. Add a little machine embroidery, a bit of personalisation and ta-da!
Butterfly bunting for Rosalie!
It feels good to have those creative juices flowing again - I now have about a zillion projects to finish (and a whole load to start too). Although I do really need to get the sewing machine serviced or at the very least get a new bulb; I been sewing in the dark with a head torch for extra light for for several projects now, but only remember that the bulb is out once I actually get the machine out. Is it too late to be blaming baby brain still?
I kept the butterfly theme for the packaging...
